Boise, Idaho: African American man injures refugee children in violent knife attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2018

Update July 2nd: One of the little children has died and Kinner has been charged with murder.

The allegedly unprovoked attack happened yesterday at a housing complex that is popular with resettlement agencies in Idaho.

Boise knife attacker

California “man!”  Knife attacker is in custody.  We can rule out white supremacism as a driving force in the case.

We’ll see how this strange story evolves tomorrow, but I wanted to get at least this bare bones story up today.

I read several stories at major US media outlets, but none had information that Heavy.com is reporting.

Here is a bit of their detailed account of what police think happened.  No motive has been discovered at this time.

Nine months in to fiscal year, Trump could break record low number of refugees admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2018

George W. Bush held the previous record low refugee admission years 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003—following the national shock of 9/11.

Trump and GW bush smirk

Unless Donald Trump puts refugee program in to high gear in coming months, he will set the record for the lowest resettlement year since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed in to law by JIMMY CARTER.  GW Bush held previous record.

But, Donald Trump, if the present rate continues, could come in as low as 21,000-22,000 admissions before the fiscal year ends on September 30th.

Readers will recall that the President set the CEILING for this fiscal year at 45,000.

However, before you celebrate, remember that lowering the numbers for a few years is not enough, the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) must be reformed at its very basic level (requiring Congress!) or once President Trump is no longer in office the program will simply go in to overdrive as the Open Borders advocates and resettlement contractors attempt to make up for what they will see as lost time in changing America by changing the people.

Refugee Resettlement Watch is eleven years old today!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2018

Am I nuts or what!  

RRW 11 years old

Eleven years ago RRW was launched because refugees were being quietly placed in the county seat, Hagerstown, of my rural western Maryland county and I (and others) wanted some answers about who was doing this and why.

Our local newspaper, the Herald Mail, refused to investigate and write an article that would explain what I eventually learned, on my own, was that the US Refugee Admissions Program was responsible.

I didn’t start out with strong opposition, in fact, one of my initial concerns was that some of the refugees placed here seemed to have been abandoned in some pretty lousy neighborhoods.

But….

Why the hush-hush about the program? (The secrecy part was what really hooked me!)

So, I figured I would have to learn about it myself and let people know what I found. How much time could that take?  Little did I know, my life would change forever.

Since that first day, July 1, 2007, I have rarely missed a day (slowing a bit lately by skipping Saturdays!) writing about some aspect of the program and/or more broadly about refugees and immigration generally.

For me, immigration and how it is managed worldwide is all there is—the only issue that will determine how our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will live.

As far as I am concerned, no other political issue matters!

In those eleven years, RRW has published 9,244 posts that have been read by people in every country or territory in the world (except one country and one island group).

And, if you are wondering, what about those tiny Pacific Islands like Kiribati, Tongo, and Vanuatu—-yes, I’ve had readers from there as well!

Here is my wordpress countries map:

It looks like only people of Western Sahara in Africa and Norway’s Svalbard Islands have never been visitors to RRW!

 

 

Thanks for continuing to read RRW.
